AceShowbiz - Is she okay? Alana Thompson a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo was photographed looking upset during a rehearsal for "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors" on August 11 in Los Angeles. The 12-year-old reality TV star was seen crying while walking around CBS Studios. Did the rehearsal not go well for her?
Donning a red T-shirt and black shorts, Honey was snapped wiping her tears away with one hand, while the other held her phone. She was accompanied by her mother June Shannon a.k.a. Mama June, which was dressed in a black tee, matching pants and distressed denim jacket, during the emotional day.
It remains unknown as to why Honey cried that day. It might be because things weren't go her way during the preparation for the spin-off of "Dancing with the Stars".
However, it seems like the emotional moment didn't last too long as she was seen joking around in a video obtained by Daily Mail. At one moment, she could be seen joking with co-star Miles Brown.
The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star earns whopping $50,000 for just signing up for the dancing competition show. In addition, the longer she stays on the competition, the more money she will get. Should she can make it to episode 3, she will get additional $10k, and she's promised another $15k if she stays on the show up until episode 5. If she goes on to the finale, she will get another $20k.
On "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors", Honey will be joined by "Stuck in the Middle" actress Ariana Greenblatt. Also competing on the show are "Black-ish" star Miles, Lindsay Arnold's sister Rylee Arnold and Jenna Johnson's niece Hailey Bills. The upcoming season will mark the second spin-off of "Dancing with the Stars". Meanwhile, older pro dancers will act as mentors on the upcoming show.
